Promoted to Gold Division, Warbringer Upsilon. I got on and was rank 5 in Silver, lost three games, and that was the recipe for success. I was rank 13, then alt-tabbing got me to rank 9. If I knew being bad would be so successful, I'd have never gone to college.
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

No, it's just that you were winning when Battle.net wasn't expecting to, so your sigma was too high for you to get promoted (there's a big thread on TL about MMR and sigma and how promotion probably works [since we can't be sure]).

After playing a few 2s games with an old friend.  It's full of terrible players who rely on a rush to win.  This is almost as bad as arenas in WoW :/

That seems to be the trend in 1s, too.  Invariably when I see I'm playing zerg I know to expect lings, and invariably I can counter them.  :)
I have a programming folder, and I have nothing of value there

Running with Code has a new home!

Our species really annoys me.

I can't complain too much.  All these new units are throwing me off.  I've got very little play time until my belt :/

Edit:  Dave.425 for when I do play.

I'm on sporadically.  Often for hours in a single day then not again for a week or two :)

My realid is posted where appropriate.  Gold 1v1, Silver 2v2 :(, Platinum 3v3
